This unique drama starred Moon Geun-young, Koreans' favorite "little-sister" and established actor Park Shin-yang (Lovers in Paris and War of Money), and was something of a sensation even before production was complete. Focusing on the intrigues, dramas, and romance of Shin Yunbok and Kim Hong-do, two of the Joseon dynasty’s most famous painters, the drama tells the story of Yunbok, who is actually a girl disguised as a boy. This is the drama that won Moon Geun-young the Best Actress award during the 2008 SBS Grand Acting Award ceremony. She is said to have shown wholehearted commitment to this drama and even broke her nose during filming. Shin Yunbok and Kim Hong-do, also know as Hyewon and Danwon respectively, really did exist, and some of their paintings, which feature in the drama, can be seen at the National Museum of Korea.

In 1766, Kang Su-hang, a painter and senior member of Dohwaseo, the Academy of Painting, was found killed after being secretly commissioned by the son of the crown prince who would later become King Jungjo (1752-1800, the 22nd King of the Joseon Dynasty). The commission was to paint a portrait of the crown prince. Seo Jing, another member of Dohwaseo, was found dead while investigating the death of Kang Su-hang.

In addition, Seo Jing’s wife is murdered and his daughter goes missing. Ten years later, Kim Hong-do, a senior member of Dohwaseo, discovers Shin Yun-bok, a new student. Hong-do discovers great talent in Yun-bok and tries to protect the student from the conspiracies that surround him. King Jungjo also discovers Yun-bok’s enormous talent. Kim Hong-do and Shin Yun-bok serve as the eyes of the king, depicting the true reality of the common people. However, powerful palace officials conspire to get rid of the two painters, and soon afterwards, they are kicked out of Dohwaseo.

Then, the king secretly orders the pair to find the portrait of his father painted by Kang Su-hang. Kim Hong-do and Shin Yun-bok are successful in recovering the portrait, overcoming hurdles and dangerous traps set up by enemies. The recovery of the painting also helps reveal the secret behind the death of Seo Jing, who is actually Shin Yun-bok’s father.

In the process, Kim Hong-do realizes that he is truly in love with Shin Yun-bok. However, he tries to leave him because he knows that the affair would be an impossible one....
